Aromatherapy is a method of employing the essential oils to protect, heal and beautify. The best known way to employ the oils is through massage but, as you will see in this book, there are many more ways to use the oils.
Essential oils have been variously described as the 'life force' or 'essence' of plants. The most wonderful thing about essential oils is that they are available to everyone and, once you understand the basic concepts and observe the appropriate methods and procedures, they are very simple to use. Our sense of smell is primal and the most evocative sense we possess, as it is connected to the part of the brain responsible for memory. Which of us is not transported back to other people, places and other days by a sudden waft of fragrant perfume, or made to feel nauseous by a pungent odour or unwittingly attracted to or repulsed by a person because of their smell? Which of us hasn't passed a bakery or a coffee shop and been drawn, with mouth watering, inside to buy? This powerful sense is responsible for many of our eating pleasures as without it food largely can scarcely be tasted.
These days, herbs and essential oils are attracting more attention and emerging as scientifically proven and accepted remedies. We now understand how and why certain essential oils heal, but the actions of others still remain a mystery.
